NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

The private pilot was practicing touch-and-go landings in a ski-equipped airplane in an area of flat, featureless, snow-covered terrain. During the first landing, just after touchdown, the right main landing gear collapsed, and the airplane nosed over. The airplane sustained substantial damage to both wings and fuselage. Due to the remote location of the accident airplane, no NTSB postaccident inspection of the wreckage was accomplished, and the reason for the gear collapse was not determined.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:

The collapse of the airplane's right main landing gear, for an undetermined reason, during the landing roll.
