From what i have heard, you will run into a major mess when opening the pool if closed when it is dirty.

you can indeed close a pool for winter whilst it is green, my suggestion would not to close it in such state if possible. But if needs much i would give it a high dose of Shock Chlorine, such as Cal Hypo, then leave system running for a few hours, turn system off cover pool, and 48hours later, add a long life algaecide
