The aircraft was performing touch and goes when it slid into a snowbank on the side of the runway. The certified flight instructor (CFI) said, "Upon landing and rollout, the aircraft slide sideways on some ice, corrections were made, but no change." The aircraft subsequently struck the snowbank at the edge of the runway. The CFI reported no mechanical malfunction in his written report. The CFI reported that the dual student was at the controls at the time of the accident. A postaccident examination of the aircraft revealed no anomalies that could be associated with a preexisting condition.

Probable Cause: The loss of directional control by the student pilot and the inadequate remedial action and inadequate supervision by the certified flight instructor. Factors were the snow and ice covered runway and the snowbank.
