Aircraft damage: Substantial
Location:New Stuyahok, Alaska -   United States of America
Phase: Take off
Departure airport:Kenai, AK (PAEN)
Destination airport:New Stuyahok, AK (PANW)
Investigating agency: NTSB
The pilot reported that the runway at the destination airport was ice-covered, and that upon touchdown the surface was slicker than he had anticipated. He aborted the landing by applying full power to take off. The airplane was unable to out-climb the rising terrain at the end of the runway, and it collided with terrain, sustaining substantial damage to the fuselage and both wings. The pilot indicated that there were no mechanical issues with the airplane that precluded its normal operation.
Probable Cause: The pilot's misjudgment of the runway surface condition, resulting in an aborted landing and collision with rising terrain during the ensuing takeoff attempt.
