Everything we have in snowboarding today originated from Hiccup one fateful day. Hiccup accidentally starting snowboarding when his house was blown up by dragons and he fell on some wood debris. He found it worked as the first snowboard, and performed tricks, thus creating the half pipe, the rail grind which made some Viking ladies swoon, and, the last of his feats was the wipeout, when a Deadly Nadder caught him and dropped him into the snow.

Speed Skating

To watch, visit:

Stoick and Gobber compete in skating, each with a small Gronckle on their back. Using the dragons' fire, the two take off, and Stoick wins. However, they keep going, with Gobber crashing into a large pile of snow, and Stoick launched into space than freezes.

Ski Jumping

Fishlegs is launched by a catapult, through the sky, and into a glacier. He beats two other Vikings "by two feet." Even though he wins, a Terrible Terror he passed takes the medal.

    Hiccup has both his legs during the events, so it is possible these games take place before the movie. However, dragons are seen not to be attacking dragons but are at peace, so it is possible that this leg is merely an error or the shorts are simply not canon.
  • Tuffnut is the only main character who did not appear in any of these shorts.
  • The item depicted on the right appears in the game, Dragons: Rise of Berk. It is possible that this is a skate, as seen in the "Speed Skating" short.
