After a smooth and soft landing we reached an unexpected and hidden soft spot in the snow; right ski broke off and aircraft flipped upside down violently. Fortunately nobody got hurt and after 1,5hrs we were picked up by another aircraft. With a bit of luck the aircraft can be repaired and will fly again soon. Just a simple case of bad luck, the skilled pilot could not have prevented this from happening.

All the things one wouldn't do for a great photo! Honestly though, lucky escape and glad nobody was hurt. Cheers, Thierry
