Like other recent Sno*Drift events, Sno*Drift 2005 was a part of the national ProRally program, with 2005 marking the first year under Rally America sanctioning. Previously, the SCCA had sanctioned the event. The event covered two days and featured special stages of primarily snow-covered gravel roads around the Atlanta area. In addition to the two-day event, two ClubRally events were also held synchronized with the ProRally event. These events were Sno 2005, covering the stages of the first day, and sanctioned as a coefficient 2 Central Regional Rally, and Drift 2005, covering the second day's stages and sanctioned as a coefficient 3 rally. Since these events were simultaneous with the national event, a competitor could participate in both national and regional rallies, with their stage times applied to both events. 47 crews entered the competition. The course included 17 special stages, of which one (SS9) was cancelled.
Crew entries totalled 47, of which 25 were entered in the national event and 32 were entered in the regional events. Ten crews were entered in all three events, and three crews were only entered in the Drift 2005 regional rally. Each entrant was given a seed number to assist in determining the start order. Lowest seeds would start first on stages, as they were ideally quicker drivers. Entries are listed as car no. / driver / co-driver / vehicle / class.
