DURING FLT, A PIPER PA-32R-201, N2263Q, & A BAINBRIDGE JODEL F-12, N5700, ENCOUNTERED STRUCTURAL ICING CONDITIONS. THE WINDSHIELDS OF BOTH ACFT BECAME COVERED WITH ICE WHICH RESTRICTED THE FORWARD VISIBILITY OF THE OCCUPANTS IN BOTH ACFT. N5700 LANDED 1ST. THE PLT OF N5700 TURNED HIS ACFT AROUND & WAS TAXIING ON THE RWY WHEN THE PLT OF N2263Q WAS LANDING. WITHIN SECONDS AFTER N2263Q TOUCHED DOWN, THE 2 ACFT COLLIDED. THE PLT OF N2263Q REPORTED THAT HIS PASSENGER, WHO WAS ALSO A PILOT, MADE THE APPROPRIATE RADIO CALLS IN THE TRAFFIC PATTERN. THE PLT OF N5700 REPORTED THAT HE REMOVED HIS HEADSET AFTER LANDING SO HE COULD GET HIS HEAD AGAINST THE SIDE WINDOW FOR BETTER VISION WHILE TAXIING.
