Narrative:
The privately registered Cessna 172F, CF-RVH, was operating from a private airstrip in Sexsmith, AB. Prior to takeoff, the pilot ploughed the field to clear the runway surface. During the takeoff roll, as the aircraft rotated, the left wheel contacted a windrow and the aircraft drifted left into the unploughed area adjacent to the runway. The left wing tip contacted the ground and while attempting to maintain directional control, the right wing contacted the ground and the nose landing gear collapsed before the aircraft came to rest. The pilot, who was the sole occupant, was uninjured and the ELT activated.
