Is there any way to save ice typing without changing their weakness/resistances?

Seriously, ice types are cool but they're too hard to make viable thanks to their plethora of common weaknesses.
What do you guys think could be done to salvage ice typing without changing it's weaknesses/resistance?

I agree....maybe a def/sp.def boost a la sandstorm, or an attack/sp.atk boost a la sun/rain.
Why doesn't hail have some sort of secondary battle effect already?

Increased Freeze chance for ice moves from Ice types. Or Freeze by Ice types last significantly longer. I dunno by how much it ahould be increased, because maybe +10% is alr broken

Also, Hail increases Ice type's defenses by 1.5

What Ice needs is for GameFreak to stop gearing most of its Pokemon towards defense.

Ice only resists itself, it is not a good defensive type.

More types should be unharmed by hail.

Seriously. It's like if a dual type pokemon has 4x weakness to fighting and ground and resistance to psychic, dark, ghost, etc, they give it crap Sp.Def and great Def. WHY DO THEY THINK THAT'S A GOOD IDEA?

It would make more pokemon less afraid of coming in on hail, sure, but it would also improve team support for hail.
