NTSB Factual Report

The airplane was substantially damaged when it veered off of the runway during landing and struck a snow bank. A written report signed by the student pilot stated that upon landing on runway 25, the airplane veered to the left and struck a snow bank resulting in the propeller and left wing striking the ground. The report stated that there were no mechanical failures. The reported winds were from 330 degrees at 8 knots.

NTSB Probable Cause

The solo student pilot's failure to properly compensate for the crosswind, resulting in his failure to maintain directional control during landing. Factors were the crosswind and the snow bank.
