  • About

    A headliner for the U.S. young guns, Reiter marks the next generation of alpine riders for U.S. Snowboarding. With a solid work ethic and technically sound riding, he looks to convert World Cup starts into World Cup podiums. A two-time U.S. champion and a member of the '05 and '07 World Championships Team, he's got the experience to make it happen.

    Ready to pitch in his fair share or work to help drive the success of the 2008 alpine snowboarding season, Reiter pulled in his own podium finish at the final World Cup stop of the season in Italy. Reiter's incredible third place finish was his career best and happened on the same day of competition as teammate Michelle Gorgone's (Boston) second place performance. Reiter was also on hand to lead U.S. Snowboarding on a podium sweep of U.S. Snowboarding's Race to the Cup Series at Park City Mountain Resort.

    At just 18-months-old, mom strapped Justin to a pair of "teeny little red skis." He was a skier until seeing his first snowboard - be begged the rents until his stepfather came through with a Burton Performer Elite for Christmas. He slept with it that night and now is an Olympic hopeful.
