Snowboarder Justin Reiter would give up anything to be able to go to the Olympics, even a bed to sleep in. 

The Olympic hopeful has been living out of the back of his car in Park City, Utah as he prepares for the Olympic Trials. 
 
"In the back is the bedroom and lounge, all inclusive," Reiter said. 
 
For the 32-year-old, living in the back of his Toyota Tundra was simply something he had to accept if he wanted to train.
 
"A lot of people would go nuts over this but I think that the longer you live with less, the more you realize the less you actually need," he said.
 
Reiter won a silver medal at the 2013 World Cup. When not living in his car, Reiter resides in Crested Butte, Colo.
 
The Snowboarding trials will be held in Park City in December.
