Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The pilot reported that, while on short final for a precautionary landing to an alternate airport, with "extra speed" and about 10 ft above ground level, the airplane suddenly descended, landed hard, and bounced. The right main landing gear touched down again and struck snow, and the airplane veered left off the runway. He then initiated a go-around, but the airplane impacted a fence and terrain. 
The airplane sustained substantial damage to the left wing.
The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

Probable Cause: The pilot's improper landing flare, which resulted in hard, bounced landing, loss of directional control, runway excursion, and impact with a fence and terrain during an attempted go-around.
