It depends on the ground freeze. If the ground is already frozen excavation would be difficult to near impossible. Concrete however can have curing agents added to it to allow for the temp and be covered with concrete blankets until fully cured. I live in Colorado and started our pool in late october. No problem until it was time to backfill and the piles of dirt froze. You don't want frozen backfill that can't be properly compacted or you'll get settling around the pool later. If this a good contractor and pool is a vinyl lined style, it should take no more than 2 weeks to complete. If your weather window is that big go for it.

Do you have a pool light niche already installed in the pool? If not, you need a pool builder to do the job to code.

yes you do close the pool actually you call the buliders of the pool and ask them when it is time to winterize it.

If you are referring to underwater lighting you must install the pool first but before you install the water.
