Snowden Drifts, a frozen stretch of high peaks and deep lakes, is the main artery between Kryta and Ascalon. Sons of Svanir, centaurs, and dredge all stalk the Drifts, and travelers are advised to stay on the main road or within the protective walls of a haven.

— In-game description

Snowden Drifts is the area north of Hoelbrak and west of Wayfarer Foothills, connecting to Gendarran Fields. To the south of Lornar's Gate, Snowden Drifts connects to Lornar's Pass.

Getting there[edit]

  • From Gendarran Fields: The portal to Snowden Drifts is on the northeast border of Gendarran fields, south of the Bitterfrost Peaks area. It is east of the Winter Haven waypoint. The portal leads to the Skradden Slopes area of Snowden Drifts, near the Skradden Waypoint, west of Podaga Steading.
  • From Wayfarer Foothills: The portal from Wayfarer Foothills is in Dawnrise Pass, in the northwest. It communicates with Hunter's Pitfalls in northeastern Snowden Drifts. This portal leads to the lower level zones.
  • From Frostgorge Sound: From Bore Lynch in the Southwest corner of Frostgorge Sound
  • From Lornar's Pass to the Lornar's Gate waypoint
