Can my in ground pool be empty in the winter?

I live in Cleveland, Ohio and have a vinyl lined in ground pool. It is 18 X 36 and anywhere from 3 feet deep to 10-12 feet in the deep end. Can we drain the pool and have it empty during the winter time? I have heard that pool walls may collapse if it was empty. Is this true? We plan on emptying and starting fresh in the next season, just curious if we could empty it now.
