Both pilots reported that after the ILS approach the airplane was initially lined up on the centerline of the runway; however, at 20 feet above ground level the airplane drifted off the right side of the landing runway. The Captain (flying pilot) attempted to return the airplane to the center of the runway; however, the airplane's left main gear touched down in the snow off the left side of the runway and the airplane exited the runway.
