The 10 gallon tank may be large enough for him depending on whether it's a tall or a long tank. However I would advise moving him into the 25 qt bin. You want enough room for him to be able to move and burrow freely and still have room for a water dish. Also a 10 gallon tank may not have enough room for a sufficient temperature gradient, for a snake of his size.

From what I know of the snow material, it should work but as was said before, aspen tends to be the most recommended substrate for ksb's.

As for handling him, I would let him acclimate to his new place for 3-7 days. It really just depends on how patient you want to be. Then start bringing him out to be handled once a day after that. In my experience they always calm down within a few days. I've never had a ksb bite, the most skittish just seem to whip around to try and get away.
