NTSB investigators used data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator and did not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.

The student pilot reported that following his first solo flight in the pattern, during landing the airplane's nose was pointed to the left of the runway centerline during touchdown and the airplane bounced. The student further reported that the flight school has a "bounce and go" policy, so he applied full throttle and aborted the landing. The airplane continued to the left and the nose landing gear collided with a snow berm on the left side of the runway. The airplane nosed over.
