NTSB Factual Report

The pilot elected to land at the private airstrip without permission and initiated an approach to the snow covered 1,200 foot long runway with a slight crosswind from the left. After touchdown near the right edge of the runway, the airplane bounced several times, then began yawing to the left. The airplane then began a right arcing turn, and collided with a snow bank and a building.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain directional control during landing. Contributing to the accident was the pilot's selection of an unsuitable landing area.
