Narrative:
The Cessna 172S aircraft operated by Waterloo-Wellington Flying Club, departed from Kitchener/Waterloo, ON (CYKF) on a round robin night VFR flight to Tobermory, ON (CNR4). Since CNR4 does not have winter maintenance as indicated in the Canada Flight Supplement, there was no intention to land there. However, upon arrival at CNR4, the pilot elected to land. The aircraft touched down on the snow covered runway and flipped over. The pilot was wearing a shoulder harness and was not injured. The aircraft was substantially damaged.
