The pilot stated that he entered the traffic pattern and circled about four times, looking at the windsock and the condition of the 2,400-foot grass runway. After a crosswind landing with full flaps he applied brakes but said that they had no effect on stopping performance. He released the brakes and reapplied them but the airplane did not stop. He elected to stay on the runway and the airplane collided with a plastic perimeter fence, located past the end of the runway. The airplane came to a stop in a field and the pilot and three passengers exited the airplane. The pilot reported that the grass runway was wet at the time, with some snow and ice on the runway as well. The airplane sustained structural damage to the left wing. The pilot reported no mechanical malfunctions or anomalies with the airplane.
Probable Cause: The pilot's decision to land downwind on the contaminated runway, resulting in the airplane overrunning the runway.
