I cannot give you any pointers on breeding these two together, but i can tell you two things:
1) Unless the gophers snakes are het for albino at the same locus as the corns, you will not get albinos.
2) You cannot release these snakes if they come into contact with you captive collection. Wild and captives harbor different microbes that if not encountered before can have catastrophic effects on animals. Therefore, the release of a snake into the wild that has come into contact with the captives may act fine, but could carry diseases potentially fatal to wild populations.
