According to the pilot, he was performing a flight review with an instructor in the right seat. The pilot reported that he had been briefed by the instructor to fly the approach to the runway and to terminate the approach by executing a go-around. However, the pilot and the instructor allowed the airplane to become, "too low and too slow." The landing gear contacted the snow-covered runway as engine power was being added and the airplane nosed over. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the left wing.

The chart supplement for the accident airport indicated that the airport was closed during winter months. In addition, a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) was in effect advising pilots that runway 16-34 was closed from early December through mid-May.
