Détails:
Caravan N948FE was owned by Federal Express and operated by Corporate Air as Airspur Flight 8810 (CPT8810) when it departed Casper (CPR) at 07:44 for a cargo flight to Steamboat Springs. At 08:32, the pilot requested the VOR/DME-C instrument approach to the Steamboat Springs Airport (SBS) runway 32. The flight was cleared for the approach via the BQZ (Robert VORTAC) 280 degrees radial 9 DME fix. At 08:39, the pilot was advised that radar services were terminated and frequency change was approved. The pilot's acknowledgement of the clearance was the last radio contact with the flight. At 08:34 the Caravan impacted against the side of Emerald Mountain at an elevation of 7864 feet (2406 m). Airfield elevation is 6878 feet (2104 m).

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "An inadvertent stall during an instrument approach, which resulted in a loss of control. Contributing factors were the pilot's attention being diverted by an abnormal indication, conditions conducive to airframe icing, and the pilot's lack of total experience in the type of operation (icing conditions) in aircraft make/model."
