I am no expert on the subject but I will give it a shot. First, Milk snakes are one of the 7-8 species of king snakes, (Lampropeltis Triangulum)with several sub species included, including the scarlet king snake, which is not generally called a milk snake, although that's what it is.
Corn snakes are another genus and can not produce viable offspring if it were possible to breed with kings. I am surprised that you found a King that far north and more so that it is an albino. It is probably someone's escaped pet. They should be kept above 43 degrees F. during 3 to 4 months of winter, and then gradually warmed up to 80s for the rest of the year. they don't like the in between temps for long periods. This might require an artificial heat source in your area. periods below the low 40s can be tolerated for short periods....over night, etc.
