While departing from the Mile 203 Dempster Highway Airport, YT the aircraft yawed to the left with the left gear entering shallow, then deeper snow. The take-off was rejected, and the aircraft left the runway, and came to stop in a ditch. Damage was sustained to the left propeller due to a tree strike.
