Hmmm... would it just be snowy? I just hiked Myrdal to Flam, and the first part of the hike was covered in snow, but still possible. Is there more snow here?
How much snow is hard to tell without actually being there. And the situation can change a lot in 2 weeks depending on temperatures and rainfall or snowfall at altitudes if it remains cold. And I suppose if the road to the tailhead is closed, you are stuck. Better inquire with the tourist office a bit closer to arrival.Edited: 6:38 am, April 24, 2012
The problem with the Kjerag trail is that most of it passes over smooth, bare rock, and parts of it are quite steep. Melting snow on smooth rock slides easily, hence this hike is not recommended before the snow has gone.
Getting to the trailhead at Øygardstølen is another problem before the road is open. You would have to climb all the hairpin turns from Lysebotn, the upper part likely through snow.
okay tak! I think I'll just stick with hiking Priekestolen this time around.
I don't know what to do for the other day then... any suggestions?
If hiking is is you prime interest, there are plenty of hikes at lower altitudes which are possible to do in May. There are other hikes besides Preikestolen in the area around Preikestolen Fjellstue: ut.no/tur/…A5det-et-eldorado-for-dagsturer
Another great hike staying at low altitude is from Frafjord to Månafossen and then continue up Fidjadalen: ut.no/tur/m%C3%A5nafossen-rogalands-mektigste
If you have a car you can also explore the lowlands/beaches near the airport and further south
