NTSB Factual Report

The airplane veered to the left as the tailwheel settled on the runway during the landing. The pilot added power in an attempt to avoid contacting a snow bank, which he was able to accomplish. However, the right wing then stalled and dropped contacting the ground. The left main gear, left wing, and left horizontal stabilizer then contacted the ground prior to the airplane coming to rest. The pilot reported he inadvertently had his toes on the brakes, which resulted in the initial loss of directional control on the runway. The left wing and left horizontal stabilizer were substantially damaged.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain control of the airplane during the go-around, which resulted in an inadvertent stall.
