The Climb to Big Sky has 3 routes for race entry. Racers can qualify via the top ten (per class) at 12 regional qualifiers. These races include 11 AMA sanctioned events located across the county, as well as 1 Canadian qualifier. Route two is via the top ten at one of 14 AMA sanctioned series. Qualification by series is by 2012 year end results or 2013 standings as of July 15th. The final option is via one of 150 open spots. Keep in mind that over the next few years, open spots will be removed. Racing at the AMA Off Road Nationals will eventually only be available for racers who've qualified via the Climb to Big Sky.
