Just take away two of its weaknesses and Ice already becomes interesting.

Make freezing far more likely to occur but make it so instead of 20% it's closer to 50% chance unfreezing after first turn. BOOM! Ice types instantly relevant with the return of the forgotten status effect.

Remove Stealth Rocks and they suddenly become more interesting. The most prevailent move type is probably fighting (after ground) and it is unfortunate that the ice types that could be neutral to that just suffer more because of Rocks.

Perhaps if they made ice type moves less available to water types? Why bother brining the weakness of a Walrien or Crygonial when you can just stick Ice Beam on Starmie and you're laughing.
This is more intense than that time I forgot how to DO A BARREL ROLL!
Then I remembered to press Z or R twice.

Ice type attacks have never been irrelevant, ice as a defensive typing has.

Just give them an Ice-like move that can make them effective walls. There could be a move that boosts Defense & Sp. Defense by two stages. Plus it's not too broken, if it were to be broken at all.
