Just a couple of things about lpg tanks...
500 and 1000 ltr tanks must be a minimum of 5 metres from any habitable building.
1800 ltr tank minimum 15 metres.
in a 1000 ltr tank, the max is 850 ltr, and depending on lpg mix or propane, minimum is about 200ltr.
In cold winters, if using mix, boiler may struggle for pressure at about 250 ltr, while propane is good to about 150 or less.
We used Light Gas Plovdiv for our installation,don't know how far they travel or have contacts.
For a gas source, initial approach was to an OMV station.The guy rang his gas supplier to check for propane availability, the local company i still use.
sorry can't be of more help.

Whilst large LPG cylinders maybe available, in 5 years I have never seen any travelling on BG roads. They are not common, so I doubt their availability. The common small cylinders will end up costing you a fortune both in fuel to go and get them and in the cost of the gas. You will need a proper regulated store to keep sufficient cylinders to ensure you do not run out of gas during heavy snow periods.
In my opinion if you must use gas, then a large storage tank is the only sensible way to deal with the problem. There are of course a number of regulations regarding their installation and the whole exercise will not be cheap.
There are threads on here covering such costs for you to delve into.
