The flight, operating DEN-BOI, was being operated in a moderate snowstorm, by a captain with minimal command experience in the type aircraft, and a first officer with minimal turbojet experience in any type aircraft.
Numerous things contributed to this accident, not the least of which was the decision to let the first officer perform the takeoff. #2) 27 minutes between de-icing and the takeoff, during which airfoil contamination discussions and a visual inspection of the wings did not occur, #3) ATC mixup in determining locations of 1713 and another CO aircraft. #4) a rapid and over-rotation of the aircraft at the point of takeoff. #5) the pairing of two inexperienced pilots.
Here the links to the NTSB report, and a couple of others worthy of viewing:
