The second ever World Cup circuit is composed of 5 stages: the first event will be held in Austria Pitztal for the traditional competition on 12-14/01/200).

The next event will be held one week later in Italy's Val Daone (18-21/01/2001) in conjunction with the ice climbing meet, before moving indoor to Saas-Fee, Switzerland (26-28/01/2001).

The penultimate stage in Cahmonix, France will take place at the beginning of February (02-03/02/2001) while the final event, like last year, will be held in Kirov, Russia (09-11/03/2001).

Two of the stages, Chamonix and Val Daone, take on the formula of an ice-boulder competition (similar to
