Justin Reiter is an American snowboard coach and former snowboarder. He is also a ten-time national champion. He won a silver medal in the parallel slalom at the 2013 FIS Snowboarding World and was selected for the 2014 Winter Olympics, where he was the only American male to compete in the parallel slalom and parallel giant slalom. He had 100 starts in the FIS Snowboard World Cup and scored four podium finishes, including a win in Moscow (2015). His win in Moscow made him the first American to win in a parallel competition in a decade.

In 2016 he filed suit against the International Olympic Committee in 2016 to save parallel slalom, which had been dropped from the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympic program. In September 2017 he announced his retirement. Subsequently he took up coaching: among the snowboarders he trains are Michael Trapp, Robby Burns and Ester Ledecká.
