First timer. How do I find Albergues that are open and available for the Primitivo in December?

Welcome to the forum, Kitty.
I am concerned as I would not choose a December camino on one of the higher elevation routes when there has already been numerous reports on the forum of unusually inclement weather in much of Spain; days on end of rain, sleet, snow, and paths turned into rivers with no end in sight.
Even in the better months the Primitivo can be shrouded in fog with very low visibility. I've walked it in May and had a lovely day, but a new friend coming behind me the following day could see nothing on the Hospitales route and became disoriented. If you can be flexible in your plans, I suggest waiting for better weather if possible.

https://www.gronze.com/camino-primitivo lists all accommodations and opening / closing times. The site is in Spanish but simple to read . Opening using Google Chrome as a browser will provide an instant translation.
